immigration and social security and education policy and so seeing how he finishes in the strong poll could be a test on whether people are sold on perry or whether they are looking elsewhere. >> interesting stuff. all right. thank you so much. i know you will keep us posted as those straw poll results at least for florida could come early this evening, right? >> reporter: that's right. we should be hearing results actually within the next hour. they are already voting right now. >> excellent. peter, thank you so much from orlando. the united nations security council has an unprecedented issue before it. yesterday the president of the palestinian authority formally asked for u.n. recognition of an independent palestinian state. israel's position that more peace talks are needed. in a gesture of optimism, the palestinians brought with them a

we've been talking a lot this past week about satellite pieces falling top earth. we've since learned that overnight many of those pieces did come to earth. bonnie schneider in the weather center to tell us where they think they may have fallen. >> it's interesting. they're not quite sure. we may never know. we have a general idea of the possibility of where the satellite was orbiting and where the mid point of possibility is here in the north pacific in an altitude of 10 kilometers where we anticipate the entry point was. it's interesting to note 8 kilometers is when diss disintegration happened. a bit of debris continues -- you can see obviously it gets more as it comes down. remember that on average satellite -- one satellite re-entry occurs every day.
1:21 pm
these are smaller. it didn't get as much attention. it's not uncommon to see that. we did assume it would come out somewhere over water because 70% of the earth is water and that's exactly what happened. however, when you look at the map of the satellite, it's possible that it could have occurred anywhere here on this loop. pretty much as predicted. it slowed down at one point due to solar activity in terms of the rate at which it was falling yesterday but somewhere it disintegrated. what's also interested is with people who could have been out there in planes or on the ocean, nobody saw it. no visual confirmation. nobody was injured by it which a lot of people were concerned with even though the odds on that were slim. >> that's incredible. what was fascinating and we learned a lot in the past week. there we go. >> absolutely. >> that was our little adventure that we all shared. all right. thank you. there's a good chance that you watch the season premiere of "csi new york" perhaps.

1:23 pm
have a base that loses 130 people killed in action and many more wounded throughout that year, that's a lot to ask of a small town. just use that comparison and you'll understand just how difficult it can be for some of these military families to get through. i've met extraordinary, extraordinary people that are staying strong through these difficult times knowing that people care is important. >> gary sinise set up a foundation and is also supporting the american veterans disabled for life memorial and you can learn all about them by going to my blog, my facebook or also on twitter. so is it worth trekking the family to the movie theater to see "dolphin tail" this weekend? a review straight ahead and overcoming adversity to achieve greatness. i'll be talking with wnba mvp
